    I'd like to start off with thanking @iHacker for his wiring harness with DRL dimming. The difference in light projection between the 2016 headlights/foglights and the 2019 LED headlights with 2018 fog lights are significant. I immediately knew it was worth it considering the price. iHacker has a promo code on his page which saves us 20% off shipping. I shopped around and the price on the lights sold by the Toyota dealership @Roman works at, were the lowest I found online. So thank you to Roman as well for the good price. The lights arrived in their original Toyota/Lexus boxes and very well packaged. Shipping took about 4-5 days.

    The wiring harness and connectors look EXACTLY like the factory wiring. There is no way to distinguish this wiring harness from the factory wires it runs next to. The written AND video instructions that are provided by iHacker are SPOT ON. Make SURE to use the TWO videos and written instructions that iHacker provides! I made the mistake of only using the written instructions which caused me a major headache when it came to depinning the gray wire. I was doing everything the written instructions said except for lifting the locking tab on the opposite side of plug lol. If I had watched the TWO videos and read the written instructions before starting any of this I would have been done with this entire project in 4 hours instead of finishing the next day lol. It wasn't a big deal as the headlights worked just fine, its just that I didn't have the LED DRL or dimming configuration set up. So I could drive the truck with no issues at night. Here are some before pics along with a factory remote and Viper Remote start/alarm remote functionality test. The second video is a quick operational test.

    His harnesses are amazing, better than OEM. You just dont see attention to detail like that anymore. He could easily double his profit margin by skimping and taking shortcuts but he continues to out out a superior product. I can not recommend @iHacker LED Headlight harnesses enough. ☆☆☆☆☆ and A+ product

    Same here. Installed the 2019 TRDP LED headlights using ihackers harness. Probably the best aftermarket harnesses I've ever dealt with.

    Couldn't agree more. They look great on my '17 Thanks to @Roman and @iHacker.

    That's a beauty! No pressure but the 2018 LED fog lights compliment then LED headlight pattern very nicely. Plus you dont have to take off bumper and grill. Complete plug and play.

    Oh man do i know! I salivate when I look at them online. Almost bought them the other day but I need to take a breather after doing a full audio upgrade right after the headlights :spending:

    Haha audio, my next project! I’ve been putting audio off simply because of price! I think I’ll hold off on it for now. Im hoping 2020 Tundra in-dash with carplay can be swapped out with what we get now. That will definitely be expensive

    Im scared what the price tag on that will be. When you do audio hit up Tech12Volts.com. James will make everything as easy as possible for you at a great price! He's the go-to audio guy around here

    Looks awesome. Two questions. How do these fogs compare to the Morimoto fogs. And how do you get a harness from ihacker?

    Go up 4 posts and you'll see that he liked Doorslingers comment. Click his name and start a conversation. No clue on the fog light differences

    What @JTL said. Simply click start conversation with him. He uses Paypal for payment so both parties are protected. Ships really fast as well. Provided tracking # within 24hrs for me. Wiring harness arrived very well packaged
